Today is Good Friday. It marks the celebration of the greatest act of love that the world has ever known. Jesus Christ, the son of God, paid the price for my sins on the cross at Calvary. Without Jesus’ sacrifice, I could not have forgiveness for my sins.
Thankfully, Jesus’ death was not the end of his life. Jesus battled Satan and overcame death and the grave. On Sunday we will celebrate Jesus’ resurrection from the grave. How wonderful it is to serve a Saviour who not only bore my sins but who is alive forever more.
In celebration of Jesus’ death and resurrection, I am sharing one of my favorite Easter hymns. I hope that each person who reads this has received Jesus’ free gift of forgiveness of their sins and the promise of eternity in Heaven. If you have not done so, please consider doing it today. Your life on Earth will be happier, fuller, and more satisfying, and you will get to look forward to a future in Heaven.
May you have a blessed Easter weekend.
I serve a risen Saviour, He’s in the world today;
I know that He is living, whatever men may say;
I see His hand of mercy, I hear His voice of cheer,
And just the time I need Him, He’s always near.
He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives today!
He walks with me and talks with me along life’s narrow way.
He lives, He lives, Salvation to impart!
You ask me how I know He lives? He lives within my heart.
In all the world around me I see His loving care,
And tho’ my heart grows weary I never will despair;
I know that His with me, thro’ all the stormy blast,
The day of His appearing will come at last.
Rejoice, rejoice, O Christian, lift up your voice and sing
Eternal hallelujahs to Jesus Christ the King!
The hope of all who seek Him, the help of all who find,
None other is so loving, so good and kind.
